There are about 200 recognized species in the genus Mammillaria, making it one of the largest members of the cactus family. Everyone has at least one, and it is usually the first cactus in a collection. Because of this, the entire genus is sometimes viewed as uninteresting or common, but this program explores the joy of finding the oddities of a “normal” species.

Who is Karen Ostler?

Karen Ostler has been growing cactus since she acquired her first “real” cactus, a Gymnocalycium friedrichii, now G. stenopleurum, in 1979. Originally, Karen was living and growing both cacti and succulents in the San Fernando Valley CA, but since moving to the high desert, she concentrates on growing cacti, focusing on Ariocarpus and related genera, Mammillarias, North and South American Opuntias, and Gymnocalyciums.

As well as being Show Chair for the Sunset Succulent Society for 16 years, Karen has been actively involved in both the CSSA and Intercity Shows. She is a long-time member of the Los Angeles, San Gabriel, Central Coast, and Sunset Societies, as well as the new Conejo C&S Society.
